Day 14 : Loop Knit Stitch : #100daysofknitstitches

Knit Loop Stitch +VIDEO

Today’s stitch is the Loop Knit Stitch.
It’s a crazy stitch!
I knit Continental style and the examples I found were for English, so I hope this method helps those of you who knit Continental style! :)

I found a Loop Knit Stitch in an old book, but I couldn’t recreate it, so I did some research online and found another one that was similar, but I couldn’t recreate it either, so I came up with this… ;)

What would you make with this stitch?

{My daughter saw this swatch sitting on my desk and now she wants a blanket like this. I made it, so the thought of creating a blanket with this stitch didn’t cross my mind, that would be an undertaking to say the least! It’s quite a finger workout. However, the other side of this is beautiful! I’ll get pics of it and share it later.}

YouTube Instructional Video:

Pattern:
Cast-on in any number of stitches

Row 1: *K1, P1*

Row 2: *ML*
Row 3: *P*
Repeat rows 2 & 3, 8 times or until desired length.

I ended on a row 2 and then BO in the *K1, P1* pattern.

Note: I had a total of 9 Loop Rows

Abbreviations:
K – Knit
P – Purl
ML – Make Loop {In this case, a video is worth a thousand words}
BO – Bind-off
